CC'ing edwin since he's the neon man of late.

NB: to actually commit this would require a rather large PORTREVISION 
bump of things which I did not spend the time to investigate.

If I had to guess, Tools/scripts/ also needs to look for 
Makefile.common since thats where this was.

Also note, I only compiled this, I didn't *use* it.
